Popped down to Washington DC on a whim, as I wanted to visit the Smithsonian Museums on my own time and schedule. I flew to BWI and took the train into DC.
Got this hotel on Hotwire, and couldn't be happier. It is 1.5 blocks from the train station and 1 block from the capitol. The hotel is very unique, with friendly staff.
Rooms are quiet, beds were great and comfortable. They comp'd me the WiFi at the front desk, otherwise there is a $9.99 charge, which is a stupid practice and annoying about up-scale hotels. The $49 dollar gives you free WiFi, but the $500 wants to bill you for it.
There is a great roof top deck and pool area. Nice area with tables and a full service bar.
Very nice hotel, and I would seek it out on future trips.
Complaints: Charging for WiFi
Room AC was underpowered and did keep room cool enough for me. Also has sensor thermostat which shuts air off if you are not moving around (like say, SLEEPING)
Bathroom had automatic light. That means FULL BRIGHT if you get up in the night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Connect with comfort in one of our 343 newly renovated guest rooms! One of the top boutique hotels in Washington, DC, the Liaison Capitol Hill DC is inviting guests to experience our newest hotel updates. Our recent redesign completely transformed all guest rooms and corridors featuring modern lighting and sleek furnishings, creating an ambiance of timeless, contemporary living. The decor is inspired by our location in the heart of Washington, DC, highlighting the prominence of the capital city and its political landscape through bold colors. The result, in addition to a newly, renovated DC boutique hotel, is a sophisticated hot spot for politicians and the like to gather and socialize after a long day of tending to the affairs of our nation, providing guests with a powerful connection to the city as well as an urban hideaway away from prying eyes. The rooms feature flat screen TVs, Wi-Fi, iHome docks, modern furnishings, upgraded signature Affinia bedding and remodeled bathrooms. The hallways have been refurbished with new carpeting, wall decor and lighting to match the new guestroom decor and offer a transition between the buzz downstairs and the privacy upstairs. Boasting a prime location on Capitol Hill, The Liaison is the closest hotel to the U.S. Capitol. The Smithsonian, the National Mall, Union Station, and dozens of the country's most visited museums and monuments are within walking distance. The Capitol Hill hotel is both a powerful bond to the nation's capital and a comfortable escape as well. At in-house restaurant Art and Soul, celebrity Chef Art Smith lovingly creates his award-winning Southern-modern "food for the soul." Our seasonal rooftop pool and bar make another spectacular setting, with views that highlight The Liaison's central location between Union Station and the Capitol. ... more less
